A $10 Valentine’s Day showdown

The $10 holiday shopping challenge is back, and this time with some good ole’ fashioned Blog v. Blog competition. Looking for the most bang for your Valentine buck? Well we are here to help. Who said wooing your sweetheart had to break the bank? It’s the thought (and $10) that counts, right?

While I took my $10 budget to CVS, Jason headed to East Side Mini Mart to see which convenience store would prove to be the most fruitful in our pursuit of a seemingly-expensive wow-worthy Valentine.

(BlogDH) Budget Valentines 1CVS:
– Singing Hallmark Card – $4.99
– Russell Stover Assorted Chocolates – $4.99
TOTAL: $9.98

(BlogDH) Budget Valentines 2

East Side Mini Mart:
– Lays BBQ Flavor Chips – $2.00 (on sale)
– Easy Mac – $2.69 (giggle)
– Ben+Jerry’s – $5.60 (big money!)
TOTAL: $10.29

Bottom Line: If you’re looking for the route of the classic romantic, CVS is your destination. C’mon, you can’t really go wrong with Hallmark and chocolate. Though many say that the way to a college student’s heart is through convenience foods, I don’t know if Easy Mac is going to get you “lucky” this Valentine’s Day.
